How to make fruit pizza

First! Grab your pizza pan, tart pan (11′ is pictured below.) Make sure you use parchment paper and/or spay Pam to ensure it doesn’t stick!

Fruit pizza starts with a cookie crust!

For this candy corn fruit pizza I like to use a sugar cookie base. But, depending on your toppings, you can totally use any flavor you love! Chocolate chip? snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin?

Start by taking your cookie dough and spreading it evenly on a pizza pan? You can use homemade or store bought! Whatever you have time for.

Bake the cookie crust just until it is a yellow ALMOST turning golden brown. Don’t let it get too golden, because it is going to keep baking in the pan while it cools.

Fruit Pizza Base, Frosting!!

Frosting works the best for fruit pizza because it acts as a barrier against the fruit. Many fruits have high water content which would make the crust soggy. HOWEVER you can use a greek yogurt if you are planning on serving the pizza immediately. The greek yogurt it also high in water so you can’t let it set too long.

How to slice fruit pizza

Unlike savory cheesy pizza I like to serve fruit pizza in smaller slices. The sugar cookie base, frosting and juicy sweet fruit makes for rich treat! Slice this pizza in triangles with the oranges on the outside and the bananas in the middle.

Recipe Notes

*if using yogurt serve immediately. The yogurt is more watery than the frosting (and more healthy!!) If it sits on cookie for a long period of time it will make the cookie crust a little soggy.

*don't let the crust over cook because it will continue to cook on pizza stone or in pan.
